[ARCHIVED] Mount Vernon Road SE Construction to Begin May 30

A paving project on Mount Vernon Road SE from just east of East Post Road to Vernon Valley Drive is scheduled to begin Tuesday, May 30. The project is expected to take five months for completion.

The general scope of the joint Linn County and City of Cedar Rapids project includes constructing a 3-lane (middle turn lane) roadway with paved shoulders throughout the project limits.
